Experienced Workers' Compensation and Social Security Attorneys in Portsmouth, Ohio
The Attorneys at Knisley Law Offices have a long history of representing injured workers and the disabled in Ohio. Filing a claim can often be difficult and confusing. Our skilled attorneys will guide you through the process and help you get the benefits you deserve.
If you are injured at work, it is important to immediately notify the employer and seek medical attention. The Ohio's Bureau of Workers' Compensation provides many types of benefits that provide short-term and long-term financial support. You have one year from the date of the injury to file a claim or you are forever barred from pursing benefits.
If you, due to your medical impairments, can no longer work and you have had sufficient earnings, then you may be entitled social security disability benefits. The SSA considers your age, education, work experience, and residual capacity for work to determine whether or not your are entitled to benefits. It is a very important to have a well documented medical history in order to reflect the extent of your disability.
If you can no longer work and your household income doesn't exceed the SSA income limit, then you may be entitled to supplemental security income. The same standards and extent of disability necessary to be approved for social security disability also apply when analyzing a supplemental security income application.
The application process for SSDI and SSI can take over three years to be completed and usually requires several appeals. You have 60 days to file your appeal or risk having to start the application process from the beginning. Restarting an application can often be extremely detrimental to the disabled applicant as they may no longer have sufficient earnings to be eligible for SSDI benefits.
